We offer a POWER WEEK with hands-on experiments in the public space around Schlingermarkt in the 21 district.
Schlingermarkt is a degenerate area in need of interventions and new ideas. The work will be done in small mixed groups (Angewandte students + Boku students).
We start with a keynote public lecture by Bernardo Robles Hidalgo, then we have two days of research and observation in the field and shared reflection in the evening.
The next two days we will make intervention with the public on chosen places. We will use various techniques and tools to approach the location, users and space.
